Author Tami Kerr ’00 CERT and illustrator Tanja Kerr come from a musically-inclined family. Their father was the only family member with no musical background. As he became more familiar with musical terms, he remembered the word crotchet (as a quarter note is known in England) due to its similarity with American folk hero Davy Crockett. This led him to imagine The Adventures of Davy Crotchet, which his daughters made into a vibrantly illustrated and educational children’s picture book. The book is full of information on instruments, musicians, and the art of music itself.
A review from Blue Note states: “Expertly combining education and entertainment, with neither outdoing the other, The Adventures of Davy Crotchet is highly recommended.” MORE
